Built in the 19th century to supply London with water, the museum is recognised as the most important historic site of the water supply industry in Britain.
This pumping house was opened in 1838 to supply west London with clean water, and now houses a collection of early steam engines. The landmark Stand Pipe Tower is based on a Florentine bell tower.
Great fun. Very educational, took 2 yr old son, liked large machinery but too young to appreciate the engineering behind it all. Loved bottle rockets & gigantic bubbles. £10 for annual pass good value
The steampunk exhibition looks small at first, but there's more items scattered around the halls.
Take the kids to have a fun day playing with water and rideing on a steam train. The train only runs on Sundays though.
This is home to londons only steam railway
Great day out for the family or geeks who like trains and steam
Amazing place, very educational even for adults, for kids it will be truly celebration, a lot of interactive stuff. The full story of water supply industry of Britain in easy and comfortable form.
